Roberto Cavalli started his eponymous luxury Italian brand in 1970, after showing his first collection of printed leather evening gowns at the salon Prêt-á-Porter in Paris. Cavalli was soon renowned for his cutting-edge developments in textile technology, including his denim line and signature patchworks. Exotic elegance, wild prints, and bold colors are fundamental in every Roberto Cavalli collection, which include menswear, womenswear, jewelry, handbags and a sister label, Just Cavalli.

Peter Dundas was named Creative Director in 2015. Using his spontaneity and innovative designs, Dundas upholds the brand's heritage of lavish Italian glamour.
